Birmingham Friends Meeting has a tradition of providing food and staffing for a local soup kitchen multiple times per year. Since the emergence of the pandemic many changes have happened, including the procedures at the Genesis Church soup kitchen in Royal Oak.
Now, instead of cooking and providing sit-down meals, we provide “grab and go” pre-packaged meals. This past Saturday BFM, with leadership from Jimmy Ajlouny and Inge Brieger, delivered 60 nutritious meals to appreciative participants. The menu included Shawarma sandwiches, side salads, bananas, bottles of water and bags of homemade chocolate chip cookies, a local favorite.
